Door is not flush with the body

I have had a continuing problem with my GTV which is annoying because I can fix it but it will just come back soon after!

The door won't sit flush against the rest of the body it's about 5mm out. I have adjusted the door striker and then the problem just came back, so I readjusted it and then adjusted the window because it was giving me a bit of trouble being too high. Thought that would fix it but after 2 weeks of very sparing use of the passenger door, it has creeped back out the 5mm again!!

Any way to permanently fix this? Have I simply not tightened up the striker enough or something? Maybe I will use a bit of leverage on the torx key next time - it's only about 15cm long so not much leverage.
